Gareth Southgate might be without some of the Manchester City players for this clash at Malta, with Kyle Walker, John Stones, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and Kalvin Phillips likely to rest up after a successful Champions League final win. However, there is more than enough strength in depth to enjoy a comfortable win over a Malta side who are unlikely to be competitive.

Harry Kane might look to bolster his impressive international scoring record in this game, having previously pilfered 55 goals in 82 appearances, with the Tottenham Hotspur striker’s future once again up in the air. We might also see Callum Wilson get some game time after the Newcastle forward’s impressive finish to the season.

Given that Southgate will be reluctant to field the City players, perhaps England might not run up a huge winning scoreline and we would throw a couple of darts when it comes to the correct score betting market. A 3-0 or 4-0 win looks about right, with the visitors looking to try out several players and they are sitting pretty after wins over Italy and Ukraine.

Declan Rice looks set to head to Arsenal this summer and the West Ham midfielder is fresh from winning the Europa Conference League with the London outfit, with Bukayo Saka a good potential first goalscorer option when it comes to a market which is likely to be popular, while Trent Alexander-Arnold might get to operate in a similar role that he does for Liverpool.
